How To Tell Your LIFE Story

No matter what your story is, it's worth telling! After twenty years of writing and recently partnering with her Rwandan coauthor, Rebeka Uwitzonze, to tell her inspiring story of travel from Rwanda, Africa to the US at age 9 for surgeries on her club feet, Meredith Davis is excited to help you tell your own LIFE story.

Maybe you've never left your home and family and flown across the ocean to live with strangers for a year while you had treatments and surgeries to correct your club feet (or maybe you have!) but no matter what your life story, no matter how ordinary it may seem, it is a story worth telling. Using pictures from her coauthor's life as examples, Meredith Davis will walk you through a simple, four-step process for telling your own life story. Building a LIFEline, choosing what to tell and what to leave out, fleshing it all out using your senses, and editing to tell your story best are just a few of the skills Meredith will teach in this fun, informative and empowering program.
